I took my boy kitty Toby to the vet last week. He seems always hungry and I have seen him burping and heard his stomach gurgling. He was actually fine until about a year or so ago- I took him to the vet and wanted to schedule a dental. They told me to take some weight off him first, and to feed him more wet food. I feed my kitties Natural Balance wet and so I gave them more of that and did not leave his dry food out as I did in the past- just gave everyone less overall.
Anyhow the vet gave him an antibiotic shot (since he had lost his voice, maybe this was something separate, not sure). Then she did an exam, and told me he felt all ok, not blocked or anything, and then she did bloodwork. After the results came in, she left me a message that his results are all fine. She told me to give him half a pepsid daily for acid reflux.
Does anyone have a cat who has this? My sweet boy is about 11 years old, healthy as can be, has never had any problems at all. He is back to eating normally but he does always want food. I think it is because of stomach acid, that it makes him feel like he is hungry. I had told the vet it seemed to me he had reflux or something.
Anyhow let me know if your kitties have this. Toby is such a sweetie pie.
